Denmark: Two Somali brothers held over terror plot

Two Somalian brothers have been arrested in Denmark on suspicion of plotting a terror attack, the country's security service has said.

The pair, aged 18 and 23, were arrested late on Monday - one in the western city of Aarhus and the other as he arrived by plane at Copenhagen's international airport, said the Danish Security and Intelligence Service, or PET.

The men were suspected of "being in the process of preparing an act of terror" after they were overheard talking about methods, targets and different weapons types, PET said in a statement, suggesting the suspects had been under surveillance.
